X-Men Rap and Burlesque Show Comes to Webster Hall, Today
Wolverine. Storm. Nightcrawler. Kitty Pryde. The X-Men have become household names, infiltrating every faction of culture in the real world -- and now they are taking it to the stage. For one night only, on Friday, July 25, Nearly Naked Nerds and Lefty Lucy welcome Nerdcore Rapper Adam WarRock as he joins forces with some of New York's favorite neo-burlesque stars at Webster Hall to celebrate all things X-Men, from comics and cartoons to the movies and video games, ONLY in the X-TRAVAGANZA!
It's recruitment week at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and host Bastard Keith as a young Professor X welcomes you to a rarely visited corner of his notorious school. Adam WarRock delivers your welcome packet in the form of a handful of X-centric hip-hop hits. Then, meet some of the school's most outrageous students -- and some of their long-fought foes -- as orientation gets underway. Featuring:
Fem Appeal as Storm, Matt Knife as Wolverine, Hazel Honeysuckle as Jubilee, Lefty Lucy as Kitty Pryde, Charles Stunning as Scarlet Witch, Topher Bousquet as Nightcrawler, Mary Cyn as Deadpool, and from Toronto Betty Quirk and Leelando Calrissian as Gambit and Rogue.
20 lucky VIPs will receive exclusive access to Xavier's private speakeasy, offering a view of the stage as well as reserved seats in the first two rows and goody bags from our sponsors. General Admission is first-come-first-serve seating and standing room.
THE X-TRAVAGANZA! Is one-night-only on Friday, July 25. Tickets for the event are available at http://tinyurl.com/o4kjogn.

She returned to working on-and-off stage in the theater last fall for the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theatre Festival, and is the Burlesque at the Beach Season Coordinator at Coney Island USA. You can find out more about her burlesque background on the Village Voice Blog.
